Welcome to the MLP Forums April 2024 Visual Art contest

Visual Art contests will start every other month. In some months there may be a theme, and that may be a character, a general emotion, holiday, or prompt.

The theme for this month is:

Pets!

Requirements

  • Create artwork focusing on the official pet(s) of any canon characters (no OC's!) in the franchise (any generation allowed)
    • Canon characters may be in the artwork too, but the main focus should be on the pet(s)
    • When submitting, please say which pet(s) are represented so we can confirm they are official pet(s) of characters
  • Animations are allowed
  • All members of MLPF are eligible including staff
  • No AI art will be accepted, however it can be used for initial inspiration

 

Deadline

Submissions will close on April 25th, 2024.

 

Judging

Voting will be open from April 26th - 30th, 2024. Afterwards, voting will be finalized and results will be posted as soon as we are able to share them.

 

Winners

Winners will be granted the Canterlot Artist Rank and Badge. All entries will be eligible to receive an Art Achievement Bronze Badge. Future participation will count toward Silver and Gold Art Badges.

 

Submit Here or you can use the top navigation menu to add a submission.

I don't think so, in the previous contest there were images of multiple different sizes

And the rules says "pet(s)" so I believe it can be multiple

..... Question... Can i use spike? For unknown reason i think of him as a pet of twilight, dont get me wrong, depending on a person a pet is a family, some prioretize their pets over their own kin.

Well I'll probably use gummy if not spike...

@Evil Pink One The EqG version of him can be used. Any other version can't, since dragons aren't considered pets canonically. :fluttershy:

Looks fabulous darling! :D, and yes I believe this follows the rules, it must include at least one pet from what I understood.

Ohooo!!! So you learned something.. also cunning! It is hard to attract voters just by using pets since not much are fans of them... Hence you pulled in the rarity fans... I see what you did there.:devious:

Too bad i already submitted mine. Can't change it :Pip-giggle:.

HA! BUT I ALSO PUT A HIDDEN CHARACTER ON MY DRAWING WITH GUMMY! CAN YOU FIND HER?

Darling.
